. if you look at the issues that really matter, taming the explosive growth of medicare, the explosive growth of medicaid, saving social security, cutting national defense. we spend more than the next 17 countries combined. our defense spending is unsustainable. tax reform. we're not hearing that from either side. so when i hear barack obama saying mitt romney's a right-wing radical and mitt romney's saying barack obama is a european socialist, it's a joke because al, there's not, unfortunately, a lot of serious talk about -- and you talk to simpson-bowles about the key issues that are going to bankrupt us, not in the next generation, but over the next decade. >> you're right, joe. and the architecture's out there. we know what we have to do. >> right. >> both sides know what we have to do. both sides have to compromise some. particularly social security's not that hard at all. >> no. >> but no one's talking about it. this is a strange campaign. in some ways people talk about what they want to do 10 or 15 years from now. no one's talking about what we're going to do in the next couple

our debt for wars, for example, that were not paid for -- as i understand it when you pay for medicare and medicaid and some of the interests, everything else is paid for by loans. from china. if you want to talk about the numbers here, you have to talk about how to pay your bill. that's like having a conversation with your spouse, who i know and love, and you're going to talk around it but you're not going to look at the checkbook. that would be bologna and she wouldn't buy it either. >> in fact, you gave the answer paul ryan should have gave to chris wallace, tamron. >> really. >> that's what he should have said to chris wallace. we cannot afford to keep governing ourselves like this. bravo. in fact, we should call the rnc, they may have an opening at the rate we're going they're going to have openings come november 7th. >> i'm not up for hire, but thank you very much. great pleasure. thank you. up next, new reports say romney's advisers are divided over whether to attack president obama over libya or stay focused on the economy? this as the obama administration is still under fire o
opponent's plan for medicare, while at wong man's paul ryan's event in iowa today things took an emotional term when a veteran asked him about his social security benefits and why the government taxes the only source of income for a man who dedicated his life to defending his country. >> i served in the air force in 65 straight out of high school, and i learned in the military -- [applause] >> -- the skills that i had to take me through life. i served in grenada, and i served in iran, and i live off of social security. i live off a thousand dollars a month, and i cannot understand why this country that i gave my life for feels that they should tax me twice for social security. they already taxed me for that and they take a third of it back when they give me that check. >> you know i'm glad you brought that up, sir. [applause] >> now, there is a tax on social security benefits he's talking about. i voted consistently to repeal that tax because you know what you already paid for this. it's your benefit, you already paid tax on this money once before, number two, it's funny how joe biden and
the issue of medicare is factoring into the presidential race in three key states. i think these polls do more than anything to prove how this has been a substance free campaign on both sides. it's been a campaign according to mika brzenzski that has been a sign campaign. medicare is considered extremely important for 50% of those polled and that makes a lot of sense. voters in those three states were also asked the question, what the medicare system would look like in the future. roughly 6 in 10 said the program should maintain the current system of benefits and that number peaked at 65%. one of the most stunning numbers to me, and it is unbelievably depressing, in this age of, you know, where simpson and bowles are running around the country trying to tell americans desperately what needs to be done to save this country from falling off a cliff financially, over 70% of voters in florida said, seniors in florida said that you don't have to cut medicare to take care of the debt. why do you even say that? >> please, cut my benefits. no one is going to say that, joe. you know that. >> how a
their tax subsidies, he voted twice -- not once, but twice to end medicare by turning it over to private insurance companies. that's not providing a safety net. that is creating a promise for the people of the state of nevada. they node to know who's fighting for him and who's fighting for the big guys. time and again whatever my opponent says -- and he talks a good game. rather than standing with middle income nevada cans who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own, my opponent has been voting with wall street, voting with corporations that ship our jobs overseas, voting with big oil instead of taking care of business at home. you want to create jobs? don't give tax subsidies to big oil. invest in nevada's renewable energy companies. he voted against investing, investing in nevada's companies that are going to create good-paying jobs right here in the state of nevada. that's what nevada's senator has to do. >> moderator: thank you. senator heller, you have a minute to rebut. [laughter] heller: she has so many talking points, one by one we can rebut everything. >> she has said
charged with fraud billing millions in medicare. 91 people including doctors, nurses and others were charged criminally after investigation of a medicare fraud. it was the government's second big trade in months after a similar investigation in may involving 452 million and possible fraud in medicare. the accusations include billing the government for unnecessary ambulance rides in california. writing prescriptions force patients in dallas that did not qualify. the investigation is part of an effort by the obama administration for health care savings. next is a call from florida, this is gerard. caller: thank you for taking my call. my call this morning -- [unintelligible] when you answer the question, about the role of the government, [unintelligible] they believe people can vote without an id. [unintelligible] i do not understand that. i need someone to explain that. host: thank you. from florida on a voter id. on twitter -- the government's role is to ensure that america is a nation of laws. were billionaire tax cheat sit next to mom welfare cheat, both broke the law. next is sean
. reforming the tax code, not as easy but not as hard as medicare and medicaid. >> well, let me back you up for a second, because what really we face as we look at the long-term fiscal outlook in the u.s. is a three-part challenge. we know that we have entitlement programs on their currently trajectories are not sustainable. we know that we have a tax code that can almost surely be improved with various reforms and we also know that we have a set of expiring provisions in both the tax code and the budget sequester which starts in january of 2013 if nothing changes which creates a lot of turbulence in fiscal policy unless we do something about that. the real challenge for u.s. policymakers and it's going to be a big challenge after the election, i think, is to try to figure out a way to get through the near term without causing lots of disruption and that probably means trying to avoid going over the fiscal cliff, while at the same time beginning the challenge and process of long-term fiscal adjustments. when i suggest that social security's probably the easiest place to start, it's not some
are raising taxes and cutting medicare. in fact, there has been a study released this week. the people look at his spending plans and all of the debt they create and interest that its charge. he will raise taxes on the middle class as well by some $4,000 per family. the american people do not want more taxes. they want less spending and more growth. we will do that and get america back on a balanced budget. [applause] i do not want to raise taxes on any one. this president seems to think that keeping our taxes the same as they are now is a huge tax cut. only in washington would do thing keeping taxes as they are is a huge tax cut. hot i will find a way to bring our taxes down -- i will find a way to bring down our taxes. we will give the middle class a tax break. [cheers and applause] you know when it comes to creating jobs that paul ryan and i have a plan. it is not a repeat of the last four years because we cannot afford four more years of the last four years. it is an entirely different direction. it has five different parts. number one, we will take advantage of our energy, coal, gas, o
do? it ends medicare, makes it a voucher. dramatically cuts assisttons education in our country. as someone who grew up poor, the first of my family to go to college, i want pell grants to be out there and keeping student interest loan low so every child can achieve an education. it is important to do this tpwh a balance way for middle class interest. >> when i'm there we're going to have a budget that i will work on and advocate for and compromise along the way without sacrificing principle with my colleagues. you talk about congressman ryan, it's more of the same. it's the other guy's fault. you've been there a long time. your party has been the majority in the senate for a long time, i think your entire term. i have some very specific plans. we have discipline here in new jersey. it's not always pretty but when we deal with our state budget we do what we need to do. we don't get to print money so we work hard and we have in the last few years to make things right. we now spend 24% of the economy on government. i want to get it down to its historic place of closer to 20% over
and he's talking about medicare. >> mid romney said at the time were he president in this past, he would sign it into law. sign into law the requirement you all come up with $6,400 a year more for the same benefits and now they say to us, no, no, no, joe, we don't have that plan anymore. >> could joe biden be more effective will florida than paul ryan than that medicare message he duft jifred. . >> there is the state where that has one of the oldest populations in the u.s., it is the state where democrat also use paul ryan's budget plan most aggressively against the -- we're also seeing it in the senate race down there and a bunch of house races down there, democrats really think that's the way to drive a wedge between republicans and seniors who have been -- there's a larger question here and this gets to the problem of mitt romney's pass to president obama's 270 electoral votes. one of the most conservative swing states that president obama won back in 2008. the amount of money that both campaigns are throwing at this state, it's very clear that nobody has put it away yet, and in fact

industry. now they want medicare. they want to control the medicare dollars. no way, no how, we're not going to let them do that. >> congressman, good to have you with us tonight. thanks so much. you bet. that's "the ed show." the "rachel maddow show starts right now. >> good evening, my friend. we have a lot to do next week. >> i'll be in colorado monday and tuesday and back for the big on wednesday night. >> thanks for staying with us. the latest swing state polls. mitt romney supporters, you might want to look away for this part. president obama is up by 2 points. in swing state new hampshire, it's president obama up by 5 points, in swing state up pennsylvania, it president obama up a by 7 points. do we still call michigan a swing state? mitt romney supporters, you can drop your hands from in front of your eyes here. the latest poll has mitt romney up by 4 in michigan, which is a lot less than the 12 point and 14-point leads the president has also had in michigan in month. we also have national polls and mitt romney, it's time for the finger vision. the latest fox news nation
of americans, the polling shows ryan's pick add medicare at front and center, especially in florida -- he has a problem -- >> i'm not arguing that. >> i don't think he's going to be able to avoid. i think you are going to get some substance. i think you need to get some personality. you need to get some spontaneity. i'm not sure either of these two guys is good at spontaneity. if you can fix spontaneity, you've achieved success in politics. >> here's one good piece of news for romney. whatever's happening in sort of the inside washington game, i saw a poll today, i think it was abc news said, 52% of americans expect obama to win. something like 25%, 30% expect romney to win. with the viewers, may not not -- maybe they won't all be watching. >> skewed polls. >> christie is saying, everything will change wednesday. everything will change. >> let me see what obama needs to be. obama has to make sure that he doesn't come off as sort of arroga arrogant, who are you to question me, the president of the united states? that never works. they are now equals in the eyes of the american people. >> you m

addled so they vote republican. even among seniors florida where most people are seniors medicare and social security. a 51% to 47%. president obama is leading among seniors. it is among white men that's the only group supporting mitt romney. again, i can't figure it out. president obama did -- among all men, particularly by the way white men among all men in 2008, i checked this morning he beat john mccain by just one point. 49 to 48. but among white men in 2008, he lost by 16 points to john mccain. among white males so far in 2012 romney leads -- you heard some of the leads among other groups but among white males romney over obama 60% to 34%. a 26-point lead among white males. i don't get it. i guess the question is what's wrong with white males. other question is can white males alone save mitt romney? i don't think so. i would love your take on this. help us figure it out. 1-800-steph-12. look what is it about white men? is it they're afraid of losing their job? they're afraid of losing their homes?

about is the $700 million for the -- romney again repeats the lie about he cut 700 for medicare, and i'm going to put it back. was the president feel in some ways that these things have been debunked so much i don't have to do it again. >> yeah. i think the answer is yes, you have to address it again. it really is a big lie. we cut that money from medicare advantage programs because those programs -- they are private insurance companies who are in medicare, and we gave insurance companies that extra money some years ago as an incentive to offer insurance programs to senior citizens. now the senior citizens are signing up for it, and the insurance companies don't need that money. and i think the president needs to say that straight out. >> stephanie: and as bill clinton said it takes some brass -- >> truth is not an impediment. >> stephanie: that's what i was saying. it really was such a filibuster as jim was saying. governor romney really didn't follow any of the rules. he just kept talking, and so much of it has been fact checked as being incorrect. i think
